Our story

Owner Jason James:

 

The Italian Bistro (Formerly Antonio's) is my third family owned Italian restaurant, and the one closest to my heart. On any given day you may notice my son Jack Henry and I making personal pizzas, along with my wife Megan keeping us company while enjoying a glass of vino. Even my mother-in-law Marybeth, drops in after purchasing a new addition to the decor, or to update the 'Daily Specials' chalk board. The Italian Bistro really is centered around 'family', and we are thrilled to be in the wonderful neighborhood of Porter's Neck.

 

 At the Italian Bistro we strive to bring our customers a variety of homemade dishes made with the freshest, local ingredients.  Our warm, inviting, atmosphere is perfect for 'date night' or 'family night'. We understand the struggle of stretching a budget to include dining out, and appreciate you choosing the Italian Bistro. Please stop in, check us out and enjoy a pasta dish, pizza, or both! Thank you for being a part of our Italian Bistro. We look forward to serving you soon.

Chef Jason Raynor:

 

Known throughout the area as Raynor, Chef Raynor is a Wilmington area native.  Raynor has been a part of the North Carolina culinary scene for 22 years. Raynor’s first restaurant job was making and delivering pizza in Burgaw at the age of 16.  He then went on to attend Cape Fear Community College and UNCW, but despite his college background, he never left the culinary world again.

 

Raynor's background includes local hot spots such as Front Street Brewery (Executive Chef) and Figure Eight Island Yacht Club (Garde Manger Chef). Raynor also ran Bistro 42 in Asheboro where he competed in the best dish in North Carolina contest and placed 2nd or 3rd for 3 years in a row and won 1st place in the category of "Casual Fine Dining".

 

In addition to these achievements, Chef Raynor and owner Jason James have a rich long lasting comradery dating back to 2000. Chef Raynor has also been Mr. James' executive chef at Italian Bistro (downtown Wilmington), Sauce Italian Grille (Lake Norman NC) and now the Italian Bistro of Porters Neck (Formerly Antonio's of Porters Neck).
